Bloom Festival – June Bank Holiday

Remember when I said I was going to Bloom a couple of weeks ago? I’m finally getting a chance to clear the photos off my camera and chat about how it went. To be honest, I really went for the food element as it is run by Bord Bia but have to say I was…

Update

Meet Me In The Morning, Pleasent St, Dublin 8.
